What's in tom weber's Golf Bag
Last Updated: January 2, 2021
I have been playing golf since I was 11 years old. Grew up in Chicago, played on the high school and college golf teams. Moved to California in 1970. I play a lot of golf, average about 350 rounds a year. The only thing that keeps me off the course is frost. I'll play in rain, wind, fog, heat/cold, etc. I play super early every day because I hate waiting around.
As I age, it has become difficult to accept that I can no longer play to the level I once played too. While I still love the game, I have tended to isolate myself because I am embarrassed by the deterioration of my skill level. However, I am still on a quest to accomplish my long time goal of shooting my age. Finally on October 3, 2020 at age 72, I was able to accomplish my goal of shooting my age. Shot 71 at Coto de Caza - south course from the blue tees.

One of the more fun courses I enjoy playing, in part because the length is not too punishing and the greens are such a challenge at times. They rolled fairly well and were faster than they've been the past few times I've played. Fairways were a mixed bag - some good areas, some areas brown/thin. Tee boxes were the worst part of the course. Lots of play so I suspect it will not change or improve for a while.
Staff is great and senior rates make this a wonderful bargain. Pplus I love the vistas and the deer. The only condition is that you play early, otherwise it can be a long day.» Close

First out as usual on a breezy cool morning, The South course is generally much less windy than the North course, which proved to be the case this morning. Because of the wind, everything was dry and there was plenty of run out in the fairways, which are still nice and green with good coverage. Greens were not as quick as I expected given the conditions, but still probably around 10 on the stimp.
Bunkers still excellent. Tee boxes for the most part are good, but the Bermuda rough needs attention. Maybe when we get some heat it will fill in ? Overall course is in nice shape and a pleasure to play.» Close

After playing Butterfield Stage last week, decided to return and play Chino Creek. Not a great deal of difference in condition between the two courses, but I think the greens on Chino Creek rolled a little better. (Or maybe I just made more putts?) Also feel the fairways were in better shape. I am impressed by the bunkers. Nice amount of well maintained sand.
I play these courses with some regularity so I have reasonable expectations. I really believe that if you approach these courses knowing they are "rough around the edges" you can appreciate what you get for your $$.
Staff is always friendly and I rarely experience any issues with getting out or pace of play, at least when you play early that is.» Close

Don't play Birch Hills all that often, so it was a nice change. Perry's recent review was spot on, but I disagree about the greens. While I acknowledge that "less skilled" players might play here, the green complexes allow the more experienced golfers to enjoy the challenge of what would otherwise just be a pitch & putt course.
Greens were firm and the surrounds certainly need attention, but still playable. Greens rolled well. Since I was lucky enough to miss them in the right spot, I probably did not appreciate what could have been tough "up & downs". Had to be a bit selective where to tee up as there were a few tees which need attention.
Staff was great as usual. Fun little track to play. Nice to get around quickly and cheaply.» Close

Had not played the Players course for a while, and just in case it does close, thought I'd better get one more round in. Although I have always preferred the Classic, it was still nice to return here. Not a lot to add to the recent review by chevelle. Agree that the greens are the highlight of the course, but fairways had better coverage than expected, and despite expecting the tee boxes to be bad, they were worse that expected. Maybe it's the winter conditions, or maybe they are in fact preparing to shut this course, but it just wasn't up to the usual condition I have come to expect at Mile Square.
Still, enjoyed the round. Staff was friendly and efficient. Also nice to play somewhere not so far from home.» Close
